“Kessie is clearly stronger than me when I was a player, he has seven or eight goals per season in him,” the told Premium Sport after the whistle at the Sardegna Arena.

“We have to assess the match afterwards and see where we can improve, but this victory is just reward for the effort the players put in and the hard work we are doing.”

Victory sees Milan move into seventh place in Serie A, and marks a first win away from home since early November.
